Chelsea Clinton on Political Office: ‘If Someone Steps Down or Retires’

Chelsea Clinton on Political Office: ‘If Someone Steps Down or Retires’

She will eventually run.

https://www.lohud.com/story/news/2018/10/24/exclusive-chelsea-clinton-would-mull-political-office/1751094002/

Oh joy. Chelsea Clinton said in an interview that she wouldn’t rule out a potential run for political office. From The Journal News/lohud:

“I think if someone were to step down or retire and I thought I could do a good job and it matched my talents, I’d have to think if it’s the right choice for me,” Clinton said in an interview ahead of her upcoming book appearance in Eastchester.

Lohud asked Chelsea about the record number of females running for office and wanted to know why her name isn’t on the list:

I don’t have any plans to run for office, but it is something I think about as I hope every young person thinks about it. If you care about what’s happening in the world, you have to care about running for and holding elected office. I hope it’s a question that we ask ourselves. For me, I live in a neighborhood in the city and in a state where I feel my family, and what I hope for the world, is well-represented.

It’s at the national level where I disagree deeply with President Trump on, l think, everything practically.

But I like my City Councilwoman Carlina Rivera, I like my senators and I love my public advocate Letitia James who I hope is the next attorney general.For now, I am really focused on trying to make the change I want to see in the world through my work in the foundation, my writing and my teaching.

Oh come on. We know you’re trying to make a name for yourself. You’re a Clinton and Clintons thrive on politics and living in a position of power.

We have detailed the promotions of Chelsea like when she won the “Power of Women” Award from Variety and Lifetime Network. She wrote the book She Persisted and has a spot on the board of directors at Expedia.

Chelsea is drowning in interviews now to promote her latest book, Start Now! You Can Make a Difference, which encourages “young children to think critically about everything from the environment to bullying.”

Back in March 2017, Professor Jacobson blogged about Chelsea’s interview with Variety when she said she is not running for public office. She also said pretty much the same thing she told Lohud:

“If someone steps down or something changes, I’ll then ask and answer those questions at that time. But right now, no, I’m not running for public office.”

Trying to follow in her mothers hoof steps

“…matched my talents,…”

And what might those be? Let us in on the secret!

Oh YES! Please run!

She has less charisma than her mother, and she sounds like a goat when she laughs.

    Chelsea’s dad, Webb Hubbell, was kind of a milksop too….

    They’ll run her in a safe seat. Just like they did her mom. And God help the GOP candidate who has to debate her and be called a misogynist or something.

I am still amazed by the number of people who will buy a book ghost written by this fool/tool. Then there are the millions of citizens who may vote for her, strictly on her accomplishments-NONE!

When Hillary is elected president in 2020 (in a landslide), Chelsea should be her VP. Bill can be appointed Secretary of the Interior and tour the country.

    remember the good old days, when good trolls actually took the time to craft intelligent poasts that might actually draw people in and create a discussion, even if it was pointless.

    for all the money that scumbag is spending Nazi lover Soros isn’t getting much.

      I thought it was a parody troll account when I first read it. Then I read your reply.

      It’s so bad it’s hard to tell. Troll? Parody?

      Stay tuned to Unsolved Mysteries of the Comments Section, episode #306

I’d kinda like to see Chelsea debate Alexandria Orcasio-Cortez.

Oh man, has Kirsten Gillibrand been warned she needs to resign to prevent an unfortunate suicide?

“…I am really focused on trying to make the change I want to see in the world…”

Oh no, they just won’t leave us alone will they?

“If someone steps down or retires” sounds like code for fantasies of a judicial appointment.

I don’t see her as someone looking forward to campaigning. Bribery, blackmail and softball press interviews are probably more the style of this generation of Clintons.

She is waiting for an appointment to get her started, like Princess Caroline Kennedy.

With a resume like hers, she’s clearly qualified. Don’t deprive the world, Chelsea.

” am i going MAD, or did the word THINK escape her lips? “

Lets hope she has her mothers political acumen rather than her fathers.

with that horse face, she’s gonna need a really good jockey to get her across the finish line in first place.

“If someone steps down and every other Democrat with aspirations is paid off by Mommy”

Unless she is coronated in an uncontested primary in a deep blue state no amount of media gushing will get her over the line.

    Don’t count on it. After all, her mom was elected a Senator based on absolutely no accomplishment beyond marrying Bill and engineering a number of Arkansides.

Remember; she is BFF with Ivanka.

Ugly. Stupid. Irrelevant. Boring. Jesus, she has to be at least as good as any 4th generation Kennedy.

I say on behalf of all Republicans – DO IT. RUN.

Chelsea is absolutely the PERFECT representative of modern Democrats.

Ridiculously shallow, incapable of thinking for herself, has never accomplished ANYTHING, and only has her position because Mommy and Daddy gave it to her.

I would LOVE for her to try and run.

“…I am really focused on … my writing and my teaching.”

Whut?

No comment

The only real winner here is Sen Patty Murray.

If Chelsea gets elected (and she’ll choose a completely non-competitive seat, so she’ll be a shoe-in), then Patty Dumber-Than-A-Bag-Of-Hair Murray will no longer be the dumbest politician in US history to hold office.

    bobtuba in reply to Aarradin. | October 26, 2018 at 8:04 am

    Understand the sentiment, but there are plenty dumber than Murray. Try Waters on for size. Or Jackson-Lee. Or if your were referring specifically to the Senate, I offer you Elijah Cummings.

Web Hubbell must be so proud of her.

“If someone steps down or retires”, meaning if I don’t have to compete too hard. As far as “and if it matched my talents”, what talents?! Chelsea is the political equivalent of a Kardashian. Her only talent is she’s been made famous by being born into the Clinton family.

“Step down or retire?”

Or dead – if they refuse the Clintons’ offer to step down or retire.

TOTAL Airheaded useless DUMOCRAP tibturd! JUSTA NORMAL left~wing~socialist, NEVER had job TW?T LIKE bernie, so sorry would be THROWN out of a Commune.

“If someone steps down or something changes, I’ll then ask and answer those questions at that time.”

Sure sounds like a Clinton…she’s learned that running for office can lead to disappointment. It’s much easier if you just get appointed to it.

    Seeing as The Cough handed her seat over to Gillabrand, my guess is Gillabrand will be forced to “retire” for the The Little Wheezer.

Keep your day job.

i dislike political dynasties –
which was 1 reason i did not want JEB!

Sweetheart Chicago awaits you. Should be an easy fix for someone of your talents.

Save your money. Unless it’s a libtard cesspool somewhere, you don’t have a chance in hell.

lord–she HAS been hit hard with the ugly stick–and stupid in the bargain–the wrapper didn’t blow far from the trailer

The Clintons. The herpes of politics.
